Comments from our very own Chapman ‘Dads’-
What was the highlight of your experience?
“The enthusiasm in the kids’ faces when I walked in the room.”
“Interacting with the children.”
“To see how excited my son and the other students were to see me.”
“Spending one on one time with the kids helping them with their work and at lunch having all the kids coming up to me to say hi and asking me to do things with them.”
“Spending the time at school to watch how my daughter interacts with others.”
“Tutoring and interacting with kids. Knowing that they are learning and having fun makes my day. I honestly love coming here and doing this.”
“Sharing time with my daughter-her being proud that I was here.”
Every time I’m a watchdog it is a very rewarding and great experience. The kids seem really happy that I’m here and so does the staff.”
“I was SHOCKED at the respect and attention that I received.”
“I did get a firsthand experience on how the school functions, know the staff and of course the personal feedback about my kids from the teachers was great!”
“Fourth grade students are growing a vegetable garden which includes, radishes, spinach, carrots, and cabbage. The students will be measuring and graphing their growth.”
**In third grade…the students are working their way to 100 AR points!! Wow! If you take a stroll through the hallway you will see the progress. In addition, they are working on mastering their math facts and will be participating in a math facts contest!
